Web Design - Elements of Layout


Visitors: 215

The first thing the visitor sees about web design when he visits a web site is header. It gives him or her ideas about theme of web site just visiting. Mainly headers are images that take the place on the top of your web page. As header gives information about web site so the title is also important and must correspond to theme of web page.

Dimension of header range from 750-800 pixels and this expanse is shown like most effective by visitors. If website has multiple web pages aiming to impress targeting audience web site must contain navigation menu. Larger web sites have a split menu that leads you to other web pages where also you’ll find navigation menu to take you to another different page and so on as many web pages there are.

Navigation menu can be placed whether on left or right side of web page and menu style depends on its size so there are many different menu styles. Web sites that don’t have multiple pages and are smaller have a navigation menu that links you to related web page and according to that there is only one navigation menu. Another thing that is important for web site business is to be well optimized in order to be always found in search results. Because of that web site needs quality content. Text on web site area will take as much place as it remains after installing web site navigation menu. The last element of web site layout is footer and its height is considered to be much smaller then the header but no rules exist about that.

Footer completes your web design picture and is placed at the bottom of web page.
